At home I generally do the cooking not just because I think i would win Masterchef but as my partner doesn't really like to cook.
Therefore on the odd occasion we have a free Saturday night without the kids its always nice to go out and have a nice meal. The Willow Tree has never dissapointed and on our visit last Saturday (24-05-14) it was no different. I'd actually go as far as it excelled itself with 1 dish which is the best we've eaten there. The menu is limited and for me this is key, do fewer dishes do them well make sure you account for the seasons and change regularly. Then supplement with daily specials which take advantage of the available fresh produce and fish. Add in a selected well sourced wine list and changing real ales and it's a winning formula.
The Willow tree adopt this principle and for us this is without fail We don't eat here enough but that makes it all the more special when we do although i guess if we did we wouldn't attempt to drink as much, that being said this hasn't clouded our judgement. (it could be the £35 taxi fare we could save were one of us to not drink that might mean more regular visits)
It's a nice restaurant with good service excellent food and good cellar. We will be back, and we without reserve recommend it.
One question what's with all the stags heads ?
